AN OLYMPIC bronze medallist returned to her old school to show off her skills.

Team GB hockey player Crista Cullen visited Oakham School after winning bronze at the London 2012 Games.

She was greeted by almost 1,500 pupils who gave her a warm welcome.

Crista gave a speech to the school, saying she was overwhelmed by the welcome and adding that her Olympic dream had started at Oakham School. She said it was a privilege to represent both her country and Oakham School.

Crista also visited Witham Hall School in Witham-on-the-Hill. Headteacher Charles Welch and his wife Jo both worked at Oakham School while Crista was a pupil there.

Mr Welch said “Crista is an Olympian in the true sense of the word.”
